Re: [Nagios-devel] semicolons as comments?

Post by Guest »

Hey Chris,

You mailed me about this problem in Nagat and I didn't look at it this

IMHO, ;-comments after a "variable value" in an object is rather useless
and compromises readability. Although they should be kept intact.
What I did for Nagat is keeping the layout of the object configuration
files as much as possible. I just forgot about the semicolon stuff.
Consider it a feature request :)

Well it looks natural to me, the commenting I mean.
